knew jack kennedy, and you're no jack kennedy, and it became this famous sort of slice down. it was kind of the end of the debate. you look at when walter mondale was debating, and there was this age issue about reagan and whether he was -- you know, whether he was getting too old, et cetera, and he joked about it. it was after a bad debate, actually, and he joked about it and said i'm not going to make my opponents relative youth an issue here. there are things that can happen, and the dynamic really is the senior statesman and the new young upstart as you go in the joe biden and paul ryan. i think it will be fascinating to watch not just for what they say. there's a ryan plan on capitol hill that we'll hear about, and i think it's not just that. there's, what, 30 years between them. >> ryan certainly isn't shy about speaking his mind either. he could get pretty feisty. >> absolutely. and, you know, biden has done this over time for many, many years, and, again, ryan is kind of new to the scene. not that many debates under his belt. it can go either way here optically and w
and that was the one and we are seeing the moment right here where benson says to dan quayle you are no jack kennedy and you can hear the roar from the crowd. does all this matter? >> we the debate was over i asked the question of quayle if something happened to the president god forbid what would you do? >> benson had a chance to think about it while quayle was fumbling to give him another crack at it to be fair and he fumbled it again and tom brokaw gave it another time. that left the opening for jack benson to say you are no jack kennedy. i thought at the time this will turn this into a route and be the sound bite played forever and this is a bad night tore the gop ticket. i went down stairs into the press room and saw you david broader of the washington post a long time pretty fair minded reporter and i said what do you think about this. he said there may be some marginal effect but i don't think it will make much difference. he was absolutely right. in the end it didn't make any noticeable difference in the outcome of the election. >> chris: 15 seconds kirsten, does it matter? >> matters very l
, we are seeing the moment, where bentsen says to dan quayle, you are no jack kennedy and, you hear the roar from the crowd but he was running with dukakis and we didn't end up with him. >> i remember after the debate was over i asked the question of dan quayle, if something happened to the president, god forbid what would be the first thing you'd do and he fumbled the question and, lloyd bentsen had a smooth answer and i asked the same question again, because i thought, he had a chance to think about it while dan quayle fumbled and give him another crack at it to be fair, right? and he fumbled it again and, tom brokaw asked a third time and he gave the answer mentioning jack kennedy and left the opening for him to say that. what i'm saying is, i thought at the time, man, that will turn it into a rout and will be the sound bite that plays forever, this is a bad night for the ticket. the g.o.p. ticket. and i went downstairs afterwards into the press room and i saw david broder with the "washington post," a fair minded reporter and i said what do you think. >> and he said there might
kennedy and you're not jack kennedy, but that turned well for mr. quayle. >> he became the vice president of the united states. didn't he? a not so strong debate performance. overshadowed, out-debated by the elder lloyd benson back in 1988. i remember it well. my first president's campaign. and yet george h.w. bush went on to win the election. not just win the election, but win 40 states. 40 of the 50 states, george h.w. bush won in 1988. if anyone tells you what they know is going to happen on november 6th, i'd roll your eyes. a lot to talk about. two passionate guys representing the two ends of america's political, ideological spectrum. however, romney and obama lead the ticket. that's who people vote for on election day. >> passion and zingers and sound bites aside, in a 24/7 news cycle and only a couple days away from a very important presidential debate. how much sticking power will tonight have? >> a great question. one of the thingses that happens out of debates. what moments get replayed and replayed and replayed, not only on television but bounced around the internet, facebook, t
done. >> it has never been done. >> jack kennedy lowered -- >> now you're jack kennedy? >> both campaigns are claiming victory. >> mr. ryan said that governor romney was a car guy. if they have an elevator stacked on their couch, i guess he was. >> there was one person on stage who was thought full, respect l respectful, steady and poised, the kind of person you want to turn to in a crisis and that was the next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. i see these obama rallies and they're chanting four more years. our cheer is four more weeks. >> guys, i have to say, that was easily my most favorite debate of the season so far. i think biden was the clear winner, gave democrats the shot of energy they needed, hammered them on the 47%, hammered him on lying, said the facts matter. the moment where they talked about abortion was so destructive because ryan said i'm going to make you all do what i believe in my catholic doctrine and biden said, hey, i believe this, i respect catholic doctrine but i'll let you do what you want to do and made the case that the supreme court i
as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did when he sought the presidency. i will be prepared to deal with the people in the bush administration in that unfortunate event would ever occur. >> moderator: senator bentsen? bentsen: senator, i served with jack kennedy, i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. [applause] it has to be done in a situation like that. quayle: that was really uncalled for, senator. [applause] bentsen: you're the one that was making the comparison, senator, and i am one who knew him well, and frankly i think that you are so far to the objectives you choose for your country but i did not think the comparison was well taken. >> moderator: a question for senator bentsen. >> since your team to be taking a hostage on the stage, let me ask a question about the american hostages nine astelin global captivity in the middle east. senator, you've been critical of the iran contra affair but tell me, does the bentsen ticket have a plan for getting the american hostages held in the middle east released in any deutsch t

[shouts and applause] >> you are the one that was making the comparison, senator, and i'm one who knew him well. and frankly i think you are so far apart in the objectives you choose for your country that i did not think the comparison was well-taken. >> tom, a question for senator bentsen. >> since you seem to be taking no hostages on the stage, let me ask you a question -- [laughter] -- about the american hostages, nine, still in brutal captivity in the middle east. senator bentsen, you have been critical of the iran
are no jack kennedy. >> the debate in 1992 was described as a free-for-all with dan quayle and al gore continually interrupting each other. >> in foreign countries -- >> just not -- >> foreign aid -- senator, it's in your book. >> vice president dick cheney and senator john edwards barely kept their debate civil in 2004, with cheney blasting edwards for his attendance record in congress. >> the first time i ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight. >> in thursday's debate, biden is expected to go after paul ryan on issues like medicaid, social security and foreign policy. >> i wouldn't be surprised if you got a zinger or two from joe biden. i don't think he's worried about being perceived as talking down to paul ryan. >> and the personal moments could matter, too. biden showed his emotional side during his last debate. >> look, i understand what it's like to be a single parent. when my wife and daughter died and my two sons were gravely injured, i understand what it's like as a parent to wonder what it's like if your kid's going to make it. >> because the two men have neve
presidential debate was lloyd ben son against dan yale in 1988. you're no jack kennedy. didn't affect the outcome of the race. what matters here is the democrats have to re-establish a case both on the offense and really the defense. what they want to do and the port rat they want to paint of the republicans. president obama really failed to do either one of those things. he failed to identify a compelling second term agenda that he wants to put out, and he really didn't identify or reinforce the arguments that his ticket has made against the republicans for months, and i think there will be enormous pressure on the vice president to kind of move both of those lines of argument forward tonight. >> do you think we're going to hear from the vice president some of the things that the president did not mention, the 47% comment that mitt romney made, the role of bain capital, the issue of how much he pays in taxes? >> well, i think some of the things about romney himself. >> he has made arguments like that, repeatedly, dozen of times, it is central to his view of the debate about the role
of the candidates, such as when dan quayle was not able to respond to the charge that he was no jack kennedy. but the thing is the atmospherics, continuing the narrative. pressure is on joe biden to do something that causes people to not think about what happened in the last debate with the presiden he has got to be able to get back on the offensive. he has probably been told a number of things that he has got to say, many of the things the president did not say, and, hopefully, they were -- i think the obama campaign is looking for the needle to be bounced a little bit, even their their -- even though there is no tradition that shows that the needle gets a bounce by the vice presidential debate. >> there are a couple of other things we want to get your reaction to. first is from the 2008 debate in which vice president, then senator, joe biden discussed the role of the vice-president and also referenced then vice president dick cheney. >> you mentioned a moment ago that competition might give the vice president more power than it has in the past. do you believe, as vice president cheney does
. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that was a strong zinger and perhaps the most memorable moment from the vice-presidential debate and often, a vice-presidential debate is about assurance. can the second person on the ticket become president and step in if need be. you've got to remember in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here i
. >> senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: in 1992, it was described as a free-for-all with dan quayle and al gore continually interrupting each other. >> in foreign countries -- foreign aid. senator, it's in your book. >> reporter: vice president cheney and senator john edwards barely kept their debate civil with cheney blasting edwards for his attendance recordn congress. >> the first time i ever met you was when you walked on the stag tonight. >> reporter: thursday biden is expected to go after ryan on issues like medicaid, social security and foreign policy. >> i wouldn't be surprised if you got a zinger or two from joe biden. i don't think he's worried about being perceived as talking down to paul ryan. >> reporter: and the personal momes
in that race, even though he got smacked down with that "you're no jack kennedy" line, because he took the fight to michael dukakis and that's the bottom line that you hear from people who have been through these debates, is that the key for vice presidential candidates, guys, is for them to focus their fire not on the counter pa counterpart standing across the stage from them but rather, on the top of the other ticket. you can expect joe biden's going to be very aggressive in going after mitt romney, perhaps using paul ryan and his budget plan to do that. and paul ryan's going to return the favor and go after barack obama. it is going to be an interesting night here in danville, center college which has hosted these debates before. guys? >> john, we look forward to seeing it upon thsee ing it tonight. >>> more on the sprint news this morning, former president and ceo of verizon wireless and author of "managers can you hear me now," denny stregl, good to see you. first i want to start off with the sprint news. should a deal proceed between softbank and sprint, how will that change the
candidate such as when dan quayle was not able to respond to lloyd benson's charge that he was no jack kennedy. but the thing is, the thing is that its atmospherics. continuing the narrative, the pressures on joe biden to do something that causes people to not think about what happened in the last debate with the president. he's got to be able to get back on the offensive. he's probably been told a number of things that he's got to say. many of the things the president did not say, and hopefully, i think the obama campaign is looking for the needle to be bounced a little bit, even though there is no tradition that shows that the needle does gets bounced by vice presidential debates. >> there's a couple of months want to look at and get your reaction to. professor watson is joining us in florida. the first from the 2008 debate in which vincent joe biden and the vice president shall nominate with barack obama discussing the role of the vice president and also reference to then vice president dick cheney. >> governor can imagine a moment ago the competition might give the vice president m
such as dan quail was not able to respond dwight benson's charge that he was no jack kennedy. but the thing is that it's atmospheric, it's continuing the narrative not think about what happened in the last debate with the. the. you have to be able to get back on the offensive. probably been told a number of things that he's got to say, millions of things that the president did not say, and hopefully they were -- that the needle get bumped by vice presidential debates. >> there a couple of moments we want to look at and get your reaction too. the first from the 2008 debate in which then senator joe biden nominee was barack obama discussing the role of the vice president and also reference to then vice president deck cheney. >> you mentioned the -- more pour than it has in the past. do you believe as vice president cheney does that the executive branch does not hold the founding fathers were wise in allowing the constitution much flexibility in the officer of the vice president and we will do what is best for the american people in tapping in to that position, and ushering in an agenda that i
